Hi, all. I haven't been very active on JM for quite a few months, as my LO keeps me busy!
I do have a couple questions, though, that I just can't seem to find the answer to elsewhere.
I've been making my own baby food (pureed sweet potatoes, squash, and other things), and Alexa has been eating cheerios and cut up avocado already, as well as some cheese (shredded up). She is a little over 11 months old now. Still breastfeeding.
She was not a big fan of rice (I ground it up myself and cooked it), but that was a long time ago. She LOVES her oatmeal mixed with applesauce and cinnamon, though. I grind the oatmeal and then cook it.
So, my questions are: at what age can I stop grinding the oatmeal? if I try rice with her again, is she old enough to try it without having to grind it up?
I'm almost to the end of my current oatmeal powder, and I'd love it if I didn't have to grind anymore up and just cook it up for her as is! I'm just not sure if it's a good idea. I obviously don't want to choke her with the grains if they are too big!
